Music Building I, constructed in 1963, houses classrooms and seminar rooms, Esber Rehearsal Hall, the choral rehearsal room, a graduate seminar room, the choral music library, faculty and graduate student offices, all music administrative offices, and an organ practice room. In October 2018, a new 400-seat Recital Hall and atrium was added. The atrium was dedicated to Emerita Professor of Music Eleanor Ducan Armstrong. Included in the renovations were Esber Rehearsal Hall, a large percussion storage room, box office, and catering room.

Connecting to Music Building I by a second-floor breezeway and student lounge, Music Building II was constructed in 1993. It houses faculty studios and graduate student offices, percussion studios and storage, classrooms, the instrumental ensemble library, music technology facilities, numerous practice rooms, and a piano lab used to teach secondary piano to all music majors. Music Building II also houses a suite of four recording studios that serve the dual purposes of providing training in audio production and of producing professional quality audio projects.
